    I'd like some help in identifying two iris species. Both were shot at UBCBG in 2012. I think the darker one is an Iris sibirica (wild guess) but I have no idea what the lighter one is. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Yours,

    Brian

    Do you recall what part of the Garden?

    I'm fairly certain they were either in or near the Asian garden near the entrance.

    The purple one looks like an I. laevigata type to me and the yellow might be in the Siberian group, maybe something akin to I. forrestii.
